Can't believe adding stuff to a prepared dinner is considered a "recipe," that's the only reason for the one star. I've been making this for years with my own mac & cheese using canned tomatoes instead of sauce. You can use whole or diced, seasoned or not as you prefer. I also sometimes use large ham cubes instead of ground beef. And as with all mac & cheese, the more Velveeta, the better! You can hardly ever go wrong with meat, cheese, and pasta.
